THCC 2013 Vision Award

On Thursday October 10th 2013, The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce celebrated the THCC Vision Awards at The Art Gallery of Ontario.  This was an amazing event where six Canadian Hispanic Business Leaders were awarded for their excellence in their field and their positive impact on the Hispanic Community.

The six happy awarded recipients were:

-          Mauricio Idarraga for the Young Entrepreneur Award

-          Elisa Hajducek for the Entrepreneur Award

-          Kelly De La Flor for the Small Business Award

-          Abraham Catano for the Retail Award

-          Carlos Bastidas for the Arts and Culture Award

-          Mauricio Ospina for the Career Achievement Award

The event was very lively thanks to the jazz trio from Lula Lounge, the silent auction the appetizers and drinks! So many people were gathered that day mixing guests with nominees, easily recognizable thanks to their rose boutonniere. There were also a number of diplomats in attendance and all of the Hispanic media outlets.

The presentation of the event was remarkable with Ivy Cuervo from CBC as the MC, but also the sponsors.

But the highlight of the show was the Business of the year Award that awards the best business, embodying all of the highest attributes of entrepreneurship and community involvement. And the Award Recipient was Idalia Obregon, from EXITOTC who was instrumental in growing the THCC.

The evening was full of surprises and nobody wanted to leave the party! Finally, everyone took the bus shuttle for the Official After Party at Lula Lounge, to continue the evening in this joyful atmosphere!
